A man who allegedly kidnapped his ex-girlfriend and shot her five times is gunned down by police in a west Houston apartment.
Investigators say the suspect abducted the woman from her residence in southeast Houston, taking her to his own apartment off Winrock and Westheimer. The victim placed a FaceTime call to a relative, who called police about the kidnapping. When authorities arrived at the apartment they heard screaming, so they broke through the door.
The victim was shot repeatedly in the arm by her abductor during the standoff. He later charged at police with a knife and was killed. The woman was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive her injuries.
